MATLAB download link and instructions (in preparation for this Machine Learning Workshop)

Follow the instructions below to download a 30 day MATLAB trial license with additional toolboxes for the hands-on session on September 13, 2021:

  1. Access the following link
  2. Enter your contact information using company or university email. This action will request to create a MathWorks account if you do not have one.
  3. To continue, you need to agree with terms and conditions of the trial license.
  4. At Free MALAB Trial, choose Deep Learning package(image below). Next you will see the list of products within this package(list below). Click Select and continue. If this window for the Deep Learning package does not appear to you, continue with only MATLAB, install it and follow the steps 7 and 8 to install all the listed toolboxes via add-ons.
  5. Download the installer file for the R2020b release for your operating system.
  6. Launch the installer and follow the instructions. If you need additional help, look for the instructions at the documentation:
  7. After the installation, open MATLAB, add more toolboxes to your trial: You can customize your trial using the add-on explorer in MATLAB to select additional toolboxes. Instructions in this link:
  8. From the Add-ons window, add the following toolboxes: Automated Driving Toolbox, Bioinformatic Toolbox, Fuzzy Logic Toolbox. And you are all set.
